This paper presents work-in-progress towards a computational approach for capturing a type of deviant behaviors, that are characterised by persistent monitoring and information gathering through online social medias. Such behaviors are commonly associated with stalking on the cyberspace. We present a network-based framework for describing online user interactions. Based on this framework we provide a description of excessive and unreciprocated attention an agent pays to another agent. We conclude with a discussion on limitation of the current work and a guideline for future extensions.
